The D2N2 Public Service Compact was born early in 2016, when the former Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Compacts agreed to merge their membership. The Compact holds several events each year. In 2016 we have staged a Launch and Consultation Event , ‘The Changing Face of Apprenticeships' and 'Positively Public'. Already in 2017 we have staged 'The Big Event' at Mansfield Library where over 150 people accessed information about employment opportunities in the public service sector. You can find copies of the presentations and other materials from the events in the 'Resources' section below. The events are always well attended and well received. Comments from delegates included:

Interesting, informative and thought provoking. I look forward to getting more involved with the work of the Compact.

Really enjoyed both UNISON talks. Lovely venue and easy to find. It was really great. I am looking forward to attending future events.

 An interesting event that has given me some ideas and things to take back to the workplace to make positive changes

 In addition to the events we hold four Steering Group meetings per year, where members can influence the future direction of the Compact, including the content of future events. 

Other activities benefiting members include webinars and a members-only group on LinkedIn to promote discussion and collaborative working. We also have a twitter feed @D2N2PSCompact ... follow us!

Current members range across public and private sector organisations and include both County Councils, most of the other local authorities, representation from the NHS, most of the major training providers and representation from private sector organisations providing public services.
